This is the first Flight of VR Brain 5 LX
These are the picture of first drone controlled by VR Brain 5 LX
After great job did by APM dev team to porting APM firmware on Linux Os our team decide to start to investigate about our design derived by standard VR Brain and ported to Linux .
At the begin we develop a board called Neuron II only as companion computer connected to uBrain as main flight controller and the linux cpu for advanced functionality as low latency video streaming.
After some test we decide to try to merge all our experience on Neuron II and VR Brain on a single design and put inertial sensor like IMU MPU6000 and barometer on VR Neuron II and trasform it in VR Brain 5 LX:)
In our design we evaluate different cpu at the end decide to support RPI 2 cpu and implement on it our hardware design.
Study and understand the new architecture and at the end we done the first real flight by first VR Brain 5 LX. Thanks to Luca , Erik and Matteo for firmware and software development and porting and Diego for hardware design.
In our design we mantain the compatibility with standard VR Accessories like GPS and telemetry and start to evaluate how merge the work done on Neuron II like payload managment , Professional object advoidance ecc to VR Brain LX.
These are the specification of new board :
VR Brain 5 LX
Thanks to VR Lab Team , Diydrones Dev Team , Navio and Erlerobotics team for work done until now on APM code and linux porting . Great Job guys :) I hope in the next months that our team star to contribute on Linux version of APM code ,too
